1 Mile Walk – Mardi Gras People Parade

The 1M walk has been replaced by the Dash Mardi Gras People Parade, which will be held in coordination with this year’s Go Oak Cliff Mardi Gras Parade.  Rather than holding a traditional parade centralized on one street, this year’s event will travel through several Oak Cliff neighborhoods. Those participating in the Dash Mardi Gras People Parade will meet up at the Methodist Folsom Fitness area on W. Greenbriar Ln, Saturday, February 13 at 12:30 (masks required). The parade will include a “social distance” costume contest where participants will wear their wackiest idea for a costume that keeps them socially distant from each other. We’ll then proceed to walk through East Kessler so everyone can watch from the safety of their own yard. Register for the Dash Mardi Gras People Parade HERE.

Start Location: Methodist Folsom Fitness area on W. Greenbriar Ln; 12:30pm; February 13, 2021
